Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, December 4th
Restlessness might bring about sloppy thinking today, dear Aries, as you have little patience for going into the details. You’re more tuned in to bigger plans and ideas. You’re in the mood for swapping ideas with others, brainstorming, and defending your viewpoint if necessary, and this can be energizing, but a little up and down as well, simply because others may not always be on board or seeing what you’re seeing. Try not to react quickly to others’ words. Be moderate in your expectations, and also with what you take on. Venus moves into your intimacy sector tonight, where it will transit until the 30th. It’s a more introspective period for love and relationships, and perhaps also money matters, and there is a tendency to feel more deeply and linger or dwell on relationship matters. You have little tolerance for superficial interactions now. It’s a favorable cycle for coming to peaceful agreements about money with a partner or ex. You’re attracted to emotional drama or excitement.
Avoid stretching yourself too thin today, dear Taurus, as there is a tendency to want to promise others the moon, or to do far more than you can reasonably accomplish. Enjoy fun, creative activities but watch that you don’t go overboard with money and statements – you could be unintentionally leading someone on. Tonight, Venus enters your opposing sign, where it will transit until December 30th. This is a strong time for attracting warm attention, for enjoying your relationships, and for good advice or counsel from others. People seem to want your company, and you are inclined to want to pair up more often, even just to have company as you go about your usual daily affairs. It’s a more sociable time, although the attraction is more to one-on-one interactions than to group settings. You are especially companionable and ready to accommodate others during this cycle.
You can feel quite restless on a mental level today, dear Gemini, and this can lead to new discoveries and interests and great ideas, or perhaps some drama in your personal life. Simple disagreements might turn into something more intense, and this can seem to happen in an instant! Big ideas should definitely be considered, but likely need more definition before putting them into action. Even if it’s tempting to do so, avoid letting someone else make the decisions for you today. You are drawing people to you, but it’s important not to make big statements or promises now. Tonight, Venus moves into your sector of duties, service, and habits. This is not the easiest place for Venus, but it can be handy. This cycle lasts until December 30th and can be good for relationships with people you spend time with at work or in the pursuit of your daily activities or business affairs.
You may be taking stock regarding a project, work plan, or mental interest now, dear Cancer, and whether or not you need to make some adjustments in terms of allowance for time and energy. There can be some moodiness as a result. While expansion is important, moderation is necessary as well, and the trick, of course, is to decide when either is most appropriate. There may be a sense that you have so many things to do that you don’t know where to begin, which can lead to a feeling of overwhelm and starting nothing! Don’t waste your time worrying, and avoid investing in what you hear or what people are saying. Exaggeration is again a potential problem this morning. Venus enters Scorpio today, where it will transit until just about the end of the year, December 30th. This is excellent energy for enjoying yourself, charming others, and popularity.
Avoid extravagance and making, or believing in, big promises this morning, dear Leo, when the tendency to see things too optimistically or impractically is strong. A situation with a friend likely has a lot more to it than meets the eye, and spending should be kept reasonable. Avoid exaggerating the importance of your finances in your head as well. Venus moves spends its last day in your communications sector, and then enters your home and heart sector tonight. This cycle that will run until the second to last day of the year, December 30th, stimulates your appreciation for the comforts and familiarity of home, family, and familiar people and places. You can be both self-protective, particularly with your heart, and protective of those you love. It’s an excellent period for redecorating and entertaining in the home and repairing or refreshing relations with family.
While you can be radiating at times in the first half of the day, dear Virgo, your mood could be a little unstable if it’s based on an idea that you’re not truly certain about. The potential for going over the top runs high right now. Avoid exaggeration or arrogance. Draw on your famous common sense. Your worst enemy this morning is immoderation and going to extremes. Try to remember your typical limits and priorities. Others may seem to be the source of problems you encounter now, but you should try to look for solutions within yourself. This is not to say that you are the source of all conflicts, obviously, but that your behavior today may be attracting problems. Venus spends its last day in your resources sector, and enters your communications sector tonight. This is a pleasing transit that occurs in harmony with your sign. It encourages warm connections and communications, and perhaps more enjoyment or increased money through the communications industry for some of you. You could be updating your phone or computer. There is good energy for studies and learning, although you might feel a little lazy when it comes to especially serious topics or tasks that require a lot of brainpower just for the time being.
Be sure you have all the facts before you move forward with something important to you in the first half of the day, dear Libra. We’re seeing things through a distorted lense, possibly exaggerating the importance or value of a matter just for now. What might feel like optimism may actually be overshooting or wishful thinking. You might also be inclined to talk ahead of yourself and end up revealing something prematurely. Until this evening, the Moon continues to transit your privacy sector, and then enters your sign. Emotionally, you can feel re-energized tonight, and this is set to increase further tomorrow and the next. Venus, your ruler, moves out of your sign tonight and into your resources sector, where it will transit until almost the end of the year, until December 30th. This could be one of the more generous holidays if you celebrate this month. You could be attracted to comfort and luxury items. You are a little more possessive of things and/or people at this time, as a feeling of security and predictability is attractive right now. Being nice or sociable can help improve business or money matters for some! This cycle is steady, practical, but also slightly indulgent.
In the first half of the day, it’s important to avoid overstating or committing to something that is beyond your usual limits, dear Scorpio, as optimism can lead you to take on more than you can reasonably handle. Many of you are expanding your connections these days, and this is a trend that will continue until next Fall. You’re also filling with ideas and new plans, but today, there can be a tendency to invest or put money into something prematurely. Be generous but not overly extravagant, and this applies to money and your own energy. Venus enters your sign later today, and this launches a very pleasing cycle that takes you almost to the end of the year, until December 30th. It’s a time when others tend to appreciate and admire you more than usual. You’re being framed in nice and attractive ways. Romantic or partnering matters are in focus, and pleasure-seeking activities are also strong. There is a tendency to attract rather than pursue this month, and this is emphasized with Mars in the background of your chart all month. People are seeing your softer side these days!
Be especially self-aware in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, particularly of your commitment to being fair. Use common sense. There is a tendency to say too much, draw up unflattering attention, or to take on too many things. This applies to both personal and professional matters. Use some self-control when it comes to your expectations. You can accomplish pretty much whatever you want, but you have to know when and where to stop. Tonight, Venus moves into your your privacy and soul sector where it will transit until December 30th. This marks the end of a financial and/or romantic cycle – a period of cutting out the dead wood and reviewing the past. You’re naturally not as explicit, decisive, and open about expressing your affections during this cycle in preparation for the Venus in Sagittarius cycle that begins close to the end of 2015. You’ll greet the year with more vibrancy and confidence, but for now, you’re in the position to determine what changes you’d like to make in order to improve your enjoyment of life.
It can be important to avoid jumping to conclusions or into commitments this morning, dear Capricorn, when perceptions may be blurred by wishful thinking. Avoid covering up something with a lie; if you are uncertain or want privacy, you most certainly have the right to keep it to yourself. You could be imagining something that is unlikely to ever transpire, and while this can be an interesting exercise, it may cut into real life in challenging ways. The real problem may be inner restlessness or dissatisfaction. Venus, the ruler of financial, social, and romantic affairs, moves into your friendship sector tonight, where it will spend time until the second to last day of December (and the year). This is generally a beneficial time for relationships and for making connections. Love relationships might get a boost with a spirit of acceptance and friendship. Friends are drawn to you and enjoy spending time with you, and you with them.
While you might think that you are being realistic about your projects, promises, and money, dear Aquarius, you may in fact be stretching things. This is due to a Mercury-Jupiter square active this morning that encourages bigger thinking, but that requires some self-control so that this isn’t taken too far. The tendency may be to live beyond their means on all sorts of levels, and judgment may be impaired. However, if left to the imagination, there can be good ideas surfacing that simply require refinements later. Tonight, Venus moves into your career and reputation sector, boosting your public image and professional appeal. This cycle lasts until December 30th, and you tend to find more opportunities to enjoy yourself through business connections, or you get in quite well with those in a position to move your plans forward. You are more aware of how you’re coming across.
Watch for errors that come from ignoring important practical details today, dear Pisces. You are inclined to speak too soon about a matter, and it’s best to wait until you truly understand what you’re saying or conveying. Even so, you can be feeling especially plugged in and filled with ideas, and this shouldn’t be ignored – they simply may need further attention to detail at a later date. Now is the time for seeing things in bigger terms. Find peace through mind-clearing activities, such as taking a walk or some other change of pace. Venus moves into Scorpio tonight, and this bodes well for you as Scorpio is a sign that you especially understand and Venus is a planet that tends to stimulate a sense of ease and pleasure. Until December 30th, Venus is framing you in an especially sweet light, and you might find that others are drawn to you even more than usual. You have more courage to express your feelings, and you are in the mood for some romantic excitement and adventure now.
